Frederick Wymore
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: 1808
Owen County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Sep. 6, 1899
Liberty
Gage County
Nebraska, USA

Born in Owen County, Kentucky, he moved west throughout his life. It was while living in Indiana that he married Isabella McMains. Their family began in Parke County, Indiana, moved on west to Iowa, and eventually settled in Liberty, Nebraska where they farmsteaded and lived out the rest of their lives.

An impulsive sort of person, Frederick Wymore once enlisted during the Civil War on a whim. Apparently, while visiting town his horse was stolen, and he automatically assumed that Southern sympathizers had been the culprit. Right then he signed up to join the fight against them.

Once he arrived back home, he realized that what he had done was a very bad idea. He was well into his 50's by this time, with a wife and ten children, and there was just no way he could leave them and go off to war. So after some discussion, it was agreed that his son, Linville would go in his place, and answer to the name of Frederick. So while Frederick Wymore is officially recognized as a Civil War veteran (notice the marker next to his grave) it was in fact his son Linville who served.
